Around 1.25pm on Tuesday 24 December 2019, a man entered a supermarket on Canning Highway Palmyra. He pushed a trolley inside and began filling it up with numerous grocery and general items. As he walked past a fire exit, he pushed the trolley through setting of an audible alarm. Staff members went to investigate, to find the man pushing the trolley full of items down a set of stairs and towards a silver Holden Cruze vehicle. As a staff member approached him, he threw a large tub of ice cream at them, narrowly missing them, but hitting a car parked nearby. The man hurriedly got into the driver’s seat of the vehicle and drove away in an erratic and dangerous manner. Investigations have revealed that the same vehicle has been used in several offences in the Perth metropolitan area.
